Dan McNeil returns to The Score

He’s back home.

Dan McNeil, who was with WSCR-AM from 1991-2000, has returned to the station and assumed the midday shift at the station.

McNeil was previously at rival WMVP-AM (ESPN 1000) until last January after the station declined to pick up the last year of his contract.

The return of McNeil is good news for the sports talk station, whose ratings are often behind ESPN 1000 in key male demos.

To make room, WSCR is shaving an hour from the Mully and hanny show (Brian Hanley and Mike Mulligan) and will air from 5 to 9 a.m. Boers and Bernstein’ show gets another hour added on to its 2-6 p.m. shift with McNeil contributing from 1 to 1:30 p.m. Existing midday shows hosted by the pair of Laurence Holmes and Dan Hampton and Mike Murphy have been dropped.

The fun begins June 15.
